Adele took to Twitter to confirm that she has co-written the theme to upcoming James Bond movie, Skyfall.
singer posted a picture on her Twitter feed Monday of what appears to
be the sheet music cover page for the song, credited to Adele, as A.
Adkins, and Paul Hepworth, who co-wrote her hit Rolling in the Deep.
In early September, Adele, 24, was seen at Abbey Road studios in London, where the Skyfall soundtrack was being created and rumors swirled she was involved.
And now Columbia Records has just confirmed she'll premiere Skyfall globally via her official site on Thursday at 7:07 p.m. ET.
The track (availabe for pre-order now) will be available to purchase as a download immediately after this premiere.
Friday marks the 50th anniversary of the release of Dr. No, and thus the James Bond film franchise, and will be celebrated as Global James Bond Day.
admits, "I was a little hesitant at first to be involved with the theme
song for Skyfall. There's a lot of instant spotlight and pressure when
it comes to a Bond song. But I fell in love with the script and Paul
had some great ideas for the track and it ended up being a bit of a
no-brainer to do it in the end."
She adds in the announcement: "It
was also a lot of fun writing to a brief, something I've never done
which made it exciting. When we recorded the strings, it was one of the
proudest moments of my life. I'll be back combing my hair when I'm 60
telling people I was a Bond girl back in the day I'm sure!"
Recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, Skyfall features the lush accompaniment of a 77-piece orchestra.
The film, Daniel Craig's third Bond adventure, opens on Nov. 9.
